The doctors of Lindenhurst Eye Physicians have acquired the Tear Lab Analysis test for in-office diagnosis of Dry Eye Syndrome.
This new non-invasive, painless, accurate, quick test determines the concentration of the fluid on the surface of the eye and helps to quantify and diagnose if a dry eye is present.
There are many benefits of this new test:
Our doctors are very excited to be able to offer this new technology to our patients, continually striving to provide the best in eye care and comfort.
The ORA Surgical Aberrometer is the most current state of the art way of accurately predicting a patient’s post-operative vision during cataract surgery. We are one of the very few practices on Long Island certified in the use of this new, advanced cataract surgical technology!
Our cataract surgical procedure has always been extremely safe and our patients have consistently attained excellent vision after surgery. The advent of the surgical aberrometer has made the surgery even more accurate in ensuring that our patients are independent of eyeglasses after cataract surgery. There is now confirmation of immediate, accurate visual recovery.
This technology will be used for all our patients, but is especially important for patients receiving our premium intra-ocular lenses to correct astigmatism, as well as patients receiving the “bifocal” restor intra-ocular lens during cataract surgery. Additionally, patients that have had refractive surgery in the past, including LASIK, PRK, or RK will have a greater likelihood of becoming glasses free after their cataract surgery.
Our surgeons are very excited to provide this new, advanced technology to our patients, to further ensure excellent cataract surgery outcomes and the best possible vision
